Local Architectural Firm to Put City's HOME Initiative to the Test in East Austin

A local architect is set to construct three residences on a approximately 0.2-acre plot in East Austin to experiment with the recently approved HOME Initiative by the City Council. The initiative permits the construction of up to three homes on an existing single-family lot. Austin-based architecture firm Dick Clark + Associates will be overseeing the development, taking advantage of the initiative's flexibility in seeking project approval through the general residential review process instead of the more complex site plan review. This initiative aims to encourage more housing development in Austin, ultimately reducing the average home cost.

The 7,000-square-foot site on 717 Prospect Ave. will host two 1,350-square-foot residences and one 1,600-square-foot residence, featuring a three-bedroom floor plan for the larger unit and two bedrooms for the smaller ones. Each unit will have its own green space, and the corner lot configuration allows for individual driveways with unit setbacks as small as five feet in specific situations.

Currently serving as a parking and garden area, the property will undergo construction in the next six months, with no specific general contractor assigned. Rent for the units will be market rate, but the project aims to enhance affordability by dividing the land cost among the three units. The "economy of scale" will also enable cost-effective use of materials typically found in high-end single-family homes. Dick Clark Partner Kim Power highlights the initiative's potential to make the neighborhood more accessible to homebuyers seeking affordability. Additionally, the streamlined permitting process under the HOME Initiative may result in cost savings for developers. Applications for the initiative became available on February 5th.
